obama is being briefed on all of these developments. this is something when you alluded to -- and we discussed about an hour ago -- that there really was a lot of information that was known that was not being revealed. it appears now that some of that information is surfacing through media channels and being widely reported in the united states. it generally is coming from very reliable sources. most of the reporters here covered beach where they are drawing on regular sources, and most of it is -- have covered beats where they are drawing on regular sources, and most of it is wrecked. but what remains unclear, and this is why it is so critical that the second suspect is found, you see police officers going door-to-door to door in a very residential area. they need to understand the motives and they need to understand why these individuals on a who may be of --chnya in origin, who were were in the united states. it leads one to believe that they did have some form of documentation from the u.s. government that would allow one to be able to get a drivers license. but this is something
of all, last night in my analysis, i had no beef with president obama not mentioning the word of terrorism. i said, no, he has to wait until he sees the evidence before he defines it in any way. we know it is terrorism now and president said it's terrorism. i also said he used the word tragedy in a wrong way because it's much more than a tragedy. do you agree with that? >> i agree entirely. obama is not the first to use tragedy in describing events like this. a bus accident is a tragedy and attack is an act of war. when fdr addressed the congress after pearl harbor, he didn't say december 7th, a day that will live in tragedy, it is a day that will live in infamy. it has to do with agency and cause. an accident is a tragedy and it has a cause and has to do with fate, accident, luck. when the agency is human evil that is beyond a tragedy. it's a crime. that is what we're dealing with. i agree it's a little early. it was obvious an attack. to call it terrorism you had to be sure that the motive was a political one. remember what happened in the tucson shooting where a member of c
that the new affordable health care law, commonly known as obama care, comes with a catch if you do not buy health insurance. we discovered that the tax man will play a role in enforcing the rules of the law. you may be surprised by the penalties if you do not play by the rules. >> few people outside lawyers and accountants know about it, but the irs will be charged with playing enforcer for president obama's new law and if you are not insured it will impact your tax return beginning in the year 2014 and beyond. >> today's decision was a victory for people all over the country. >> this is about freedom of choice. >> medicare, taxes are going up on everybody. >> affordable insurance. >> the obama care program. >> all the political noise surrounding the implementation of the new affordable care act has obscured some of the finer points how the new law will effect each of us. this is a senior program officer of health reform and public programs. you think bit, you think, okay, health insurance, nobody's favorite topic and tax's nobody's favorite topic and we are putting them together. >> not o
. >> president obama took a moment to acknowledge law the suspect in massachusetts. he says there are a lot of unanswered questions. including why the brothers who grew up and studied in the u-s would resort to such violence. >> what ever hateful agenda drove these men to these attacks. whatever they thought they would achieve they have already failed. they have failed because the people of boston refused to be intimidated. americans refused to be terrorized. they failed because we're not going to waver from the character. and the compassion and the values that define this country. >> the family of the wife of the older brother, tamerlan tsarnayev, released this statement friday. quote, " we cannot begin to comprehend how this horrible tragedy occurred." in the aftermath of the patriot's day horror, we know that we never really knew tamerlan sar-na-ev. it goes on to say that, "our hearts are sickened by the knowledge of the horror he has inflicted." the family has asked for privacy at this time. >> the eleven- year-old martinez boy who was injured in the boston bombings, aaron hern is stead

to president obama and senator roger wicker has been released from custody on bond. the developments came hours after officials canceled a detention and preliminary hearing for paul kevin curtis. you might recall he was arrested wednesday. he claimed his innocence. an fbi agent said authorities did not find ricin at his home or vehicle. a news conference is scheduled for later this afternoon. right now, the man charged with sending those ricin letters to president obama and senator wicker released on bond. according to the latest information. and we're also following developing news out of philadelphia. the abortion doctor charged with killing newborns that were born alive. a judge has now dropped some of the charges against him. we'll have the very latest on that breaking news story. plus -- >> we have a broken immigration system. if anything, what we see in boston is that we have to fix and modernize our system for lots of reasons. >> congressman paul ryan defending the need for immigration reform in wake of the boston bombings. but another influential republican and perhaps a future presiden

[ wild cheering ] [ chanting "usa" ] >> applause tonight on the streets of boston, pent-up pride and fear, relief, a lot of people very, very happy tonight. people chanting, "usa," for the arrest of the second suspect. the only surviving suspect in the boston marathon bombing that claimed three lives the day of the bombing. forever altered the lives of so many more, claimed the life of a police officer just last night. the second of two brothers, the second of two boston marathon bombing suspects is in custody. 19-year-o 19-year-old, chechnyan american, his older brother killed last night in a shoot-out with police in watertown, about 20 minutes west of where i'm standing. now their flight from justice included the alleged murder of a police officer in cambridge. a carjacking, chase, bomb throwing. tonight it ended, a younger suspect cornered in a back yard boat shr
court and the statement taken from him cannot be used against him in that trial. >> while the obama administration has agreed to delay a reading of his miranda rights under a public safety exemption, secretary of defense chuck hagel has not seen evidence to link the bombings to terror groups. scrutiny turns to the fbi who reportedly questioned the older brother tamerlan in 2011 at the request of a foreign government. this is so interesting. of russia. the fbi told the a.p. despite interviewing him and relatives they did not find any activity. the agency dropped the ball. richard, i wonder if there is going to be a lot of questions and maybe even hearings out of this or what comes to mind just knowing those basic facts? >> there probably will be hearings of the fbi whether it learned more or could have done more. critics say that is monday morning quarterbacking. it ought to be about what we were talking about, what can we do to prevent or identify young people who are radicalized and how did we respond and how what did we learn about lockdowns. as the military would say it ought not

in boston. the images of those suspects were released just hours after president obama attended an interfaith service meant to heal and inspire a city in mourning. the president spoke of the three people who died in the attacks as well as the more than 170 who were injured. >> as you begin this long journey of recovery, your city is with you. your commonwealth is with you. your country is with you. >> reporter: he said if the bombers wants to intimidate and terrorize, they chose the wrong city for their target. >> and this time next year, on the third monday in april, the world will return to this great american city to run harder than ever and to cheer even louder for the 118th boston marathon! >> reporter: boston, he said, will run again. the fbi says after they posted those two images of the suspect on their website, they had a record number of hits. at one point, so many people were logging on, the entire website crash. they are still reminding people to log on fbi.gov. they are encouraging people to speak up. >>> so where do investigators go from hear? face recognition soft
the police announced the capture. president obama then addressed the nation. >> boston police and state police and local police across the commonwealth of massachusetts responded with professionalism, and bravery over five long days. and tonight, because of their determined efforts, we've closed an important chapter in this tragedy. >> now, the other suspect that's dzhokhar's older brother, 26-year-old tamerlan tsarnaev was killed friday during a confrontation with police. authorities in boston suspended all mass transit friday and warned roughly 1 million people to stay indoors as the hunt for the remaining suspect played out. the brothers are the suspects in monday's marathon -- boston rather marathon bombings that killed three people and injured more than 180 others. the men are also suspected of killing an m.i.t. police officer while sitting in his vehicle friday night. let's go to watertown. nbc's luke russert is outside the hospital where the suspect is right now. good morning to you. take us through exactly how this 19-year-old suspect was caught? what are the details you've lear
far and people's reaction in terms of -- duval patrick has been very clear and barack obama has been very clear about we're not going to say all boxers might go on to become -- right? that there is a distinction here between what these two people are alleged to have done and the fate they have. but i think the point there when you say they start out as normal people gives me this kind of almost awful feeling like you never know who is around the corner. what you're saying is it is more a psychological story than a sociological one. right? there is something happening internal and that framework which is a framework we use when we apply it to all kinds of other events that happen might also be applicable here. >> we haven't used it with regards to acts of terror committed by someone who professes to be muslim. i think that's the important part of this. whether it's a convert, whether we talk about this spectrum of radicalization, being a muslim doesn't make you more likely to commit an act of terror. that is simply false. as we look at these indications we have to be careful about the
to guantanamo. in any case the obama administration has shown absolutely no interest in that idea and every indication is that he will be tried as a criminal defendant in an american criminal courtroom. >> lindsey graham who himself is a military attorney, has spent 30 years in the u.s. air force, he insists he wants tsarnaev to be tried in american civilian court, but that didn't preclude at least for now naming him an enemy combatant to try to question him to see if there are other bombs out there, other individuals who may be involved. sort of this imminent threat notion. is he on sound legal ground, lindsey graham, when he says, yes, he'll go before a civil trial, but at least for now name him an enemy combatant so he can be questioned? >> well, the obama administration has established a policy of a so-called public safety exception to the miranda rule where for some period of time, it's not entirely clear how long, a suspect can be questioned without miranda warnings and that apparently is what's happening here. again, it's complicated somewhat by the fact that we didn't know exactly w
at the white house, that president obama was hurt, immediately this happened a little after 1:00. i don't know if you can see this, we printed out this chart, you can see what happened here, just around 1:15 when the tweet went out, the market fell, the market fell over 100 points, 133 points to be exact. dipped into the negative. that happened within seconds. within seconds that drop happened. and then ap sent out another tweet saying that they were hacked, and then you saw the market immediately shoot back up. it was a total 180, the market went from negative all the way to positive, over 100 points again within minutes. very dramatic whiplash kind of move. shows you in the age of computerized trading how wall street can react to a tweet that is read around the web. >> boy, oh, boy, alison, such a look at how in the digital age everything moves so quickly. you have to be right about your information. thank you for telling us that. appreciate it. >>> back to boston now, where a short time ago doctors upgraded the surviving suspect's condition from serious to fair. now, it is not easy for the
obamas said it was a shameful day for the senate. i agree it probably was. make no mistake this debate is not over. in fact the fight is just beginning. >> the decision to delay the vote on pending legislation leaves the door open for it to be reintroduced at a later date. >> will take a break. 423 as we go. bring you up to speed on the latest of boston. we have pictures of two suspects police say were spots will for the bombings. the suspect on the left who has not yet been identified was killed on a police shootout early this morning. the suspect on the ride has been identified a. >> the to our brothers. they hail from region of russia near chechnya the little we know so far will let you know when we find out more. will be back with our latest coverage of the boston manhunt that sis under way with a second suspect. >> we are back. >> and as of police officers are calling the streets of backyards and alleys looking for the second suspect in the boston marathon bombings. there were too. they led police on a chase overnight. then exchanged gunfire there was a shootout with officers. th
. >>> president obama of course staying on top of the very latest developments coming out of boston as well this morning and ktvu kyla campbell is in our washington, d.c. newsroom. you spoke at the white house this morning. what do they say? >> reporter: pam, my contact there was working on more details for me. we are told the president was briefed over night by his homeland security and counterterrorism advisors. earlier this week the president said the white house would not speculate on anything and not be disruptive to investigation. just hours before the deadly shooting of the one suspect over night president obama was in boston speaking at an interface prayer service. then he and first lady michelle obama met with victims from the last. i'm waiting to hear back from my contact. of coursely keep you posted when i see you next hour. live in washington kyla campbell. >>> in other news this morning the new immigration reform bill gets its first test at the hearing of the senate judiciary hearing. the so-called gang of eight senators formerly unvailed the plan yesterday. it includes a 13 ye

(cheers & applause) >> pam: after the service, the president and first lady those injured in the bombings. 11-year-old aaron hern of martinez was one of the victims who got a surprise visit from the first lady. aaron was injured while watching his mother finish the race. aaron's mother posted on facebook, that her son is almost completely free of most of the medical tubes, and his neck brace has been removed. while he is improving, it is still not known how long aaron will remain in the hospital. more chilling video
's going on at 1600 pennsylvania avenue. >> that's right, alex. president obama had a sweeping meeting in the situation room earlier today for about an hour with his entire national security team. updated and briefed on the evolving situation in boston. i can tell you that the white house is being very careful and very cautious in its reactions. because this is a developing story. i can also tell you that as of this hour, secretary john kerry, defense secretary chuck hagel and c.i.a. director john brennan are here for a previously scheduled meeting with the national security adviser. that is under way right now. that doesn't involve the president. will they discuss boston? that is certainly a high possibility giving the evolving events of the day. president obama has been briefed regularly throughout the day. and overnight. as the situation was developing. of course we have heard from the president, multiple times this week on monday. again on tuesday, we heard from him at that interfaith service yesterday in boston. will we hear from him again today? we don't know at this point. the w
you think, why you think this and they say they never got a response. >> the obama administration has okayed the suspension of the suspect's miranda rights. is that a temporary suspension? >> reporter: yes, by law it is. it's called the public safety exception to the miranda rule. normally you have to tell someone they have a right to remain silent and if you don't, then you can't use anything they tell you in court. so that's why the miranda warning is given. but there is an exception. you don't have to do it if there's a possible threat to public safety. and here obviously there's a concern about whether there are potential accomplices. investigators say they haven't found any. or other explosives. they say they haven't found any of those either but that's what they want to ask him. and this exception probably begins to expire the moment you invoke it so it's probably no good for more than a day or two but nonetheless they can do that. afterwards they'll have to give him his miranda warning and say whether he'll continue to answer questions. the justice department says even in very
pieces, we won't be able to answer some of those questions. >> hagel also said the obama administration doesn't have enough information yet to decide whether the surviving 19-year-old tsarnaev brother should be sent to the guantanamo bay prison for terror suspects. >>> we're learning much, much more about the suspects now from the russian republic of dagestan where their father now lives. now cnn can exclusively reveal alleged boston bomber tamerlan tsarnaev, the older brother, had video of a jihadist on his youtube channel. let's get to nick paton walsh now, he joins us by phone from dagestan. so nick, what do you know about this video? i just spoke with the police commissioner here in boston. he says this is a major development to him and it is going to be used in the investigation. >> what we know -- a youtube channel which tamerlan tsarnaev put up, had a link to and had a section called terrorists and had had a link to this man. the link was taken down but we have found the video that appeared to link to. he was a militant from azerbaijan. the better known name here is del gato. wha
bloomberg view," msnbc political analyst. new book "center holds obama and his enemies" is out june 4th. some believe the boston marathon bombing means de facto we should pause, slow down the process of immigration reform. john mccain calls that ludicrous. what do you think? >> i'm with john mccain on this one. i mean, this is almost pathetic kind of excuse. what does it have to do with a mexican living in the united states who has done everything right and wants their kids to be able to get ahead in american life? what is this incident in boston have to do -- >> the argument is these are two individuals who emigrated from dagestan, from chechnya, came here, and ended up wreaking havoc. >> so what the critics don't get is that what the immigration bill would do, if you actually look at where they are in their preparation of it, is it would strengthen our immigration laws and make it harder for bad guys to get in by modernizing our immigration system. so people who say that, you know, this is an argument against immigration reform, even if they're in the united states senate, simply don'
that comes across the border with biometric data and can't get obama care so they can work and pay taxes but never get medicaid. you're seeing him going hat in hand trying to sell his bill as even more draconian and far right. we're going to electrify the whole southern border, i suppose, or whatever it is they want. just to get them to pass something that would help the republican party because it would make them less toxic to latino voters. >> joy reid and dana milbank, who i believe was recommending not clitoridectomy, but the removal of the tongue for ann coulter. thank you very much. >> thank you, doctor. >>> as we go to break, new video just in featuring the mother of the bombing suspects, again, insistent that her sons are innocent. >> what happened is a terrible thing. but i know that my kids have nothing to do with this. i know it.

has been one of the tensest weeks of the entire obama presidency, just think about it, you had the bombing in boston on monday, followed by those ricin letters, one addressed to the president, another addressed up to a senator on capitol hill and, of course, you had the explosion in texas. now, obviously nothing connecting those other events with this but all contributing to a very tense week for the homeland security team. >> of course, this is the anniversary muof the waco bombings. i'm here with dan abrams, and let's talk a little more about the possibility that these men may have been from chechnya. that is an area known to be a hotbed of terrorism. >> and the question always is, how closely allied are the ch h chechen terrorists with al qaeda. they've been long fighting in russia. that's been their battle but the issue is that very often they have been bringing in from the arab peninsula and other places other fighters, have carous moussaoui was a recruiter for them. chechen fighters have long been fighting alongside u.s. forces in 2001 so no question there are questions.
, president obama praising law enforcement in trackinging down the suspect, late last night after authorities announced they captured their man, this is what the president had to say. >> boston police and state police and local police across the come mop wealth of massachusetts responded with professionalism and bravery over five long days and tonight, because of their determined efforts, we have closed an important chapter in this tragedy. >> nbc's kristen welker at the white house for us. what's happening at the white house today? >> no events on the president's schedule but i can tell you behind the scenes, i have been told by administration officials, the president will be in contact with his national security team when necessary to monitor the ongoing developments in this investigation. you remember when president obama spoke last night, craig, he said there are a number of questions that need to be anticipated, included what motivated these two young men to take these hape noeinous action and of course did they have accomplices? that is the question everybody wants answered now. i don't
between the obama administration and some of the republican -- sorry about this and what that means is the obama administration has said the criminal justice system can make this work, the criminal can handle national security risks like this person, terrorists have been prosecuted, moussaoui. this administration is committed to using the american courts there are some critics, like senator mccain, like senator graham, who say that's too big a risk, that we have too many protection, we have too many abilities on the part of these defendants not to answer questions that put all of us at risk but i don't think there's any chance the obama administration is going to change its mind and use something other than the criminal justice system for this case. >> because a lot of people are raising questions, they had apparently some explosive devices, some weapons, rifles, hand grenades, stuff that's pretty expensive. where did they get this material? where did the money come from that helped them purchase this material? that's why some of these republican senators, lawmakers, are asking for
